    I want to make reservations at the Contemporary after makeover is done. My wife and I stayed there as a young couple in ‘71 just after it opened. I would like to plan a surprise revisit in a room facing MK Castle. Can U advise when reservations will reopen

    Hi Alfred,

    Welcome to planDisney! What a wonderful surprise you are planning for your wife. I have it on good authority that you are in the lead for spouse of the year this year!

    It sounds like you would like to reserve a room with a theme park view at Disney's Contemporary Resort. Depending on the actual dates of your visit, you may be able to make that reservation now. To search online, you can search using the link above for Disney's Contemporary Resort rooms or you can search for a vacation package - just click on Book your Walt Disney World Vacation today. With a vacation package, you would get the resort hotel room and theme park tickets. Be advised that rooms may be unavailable during the dates you would like to reserve, especially given the refurbishment at this resort hotel and the upcoming launch of The World's Most Magical Celebration.

    I would suggest that you consider a completely magical evening with an advanced dining reservation at the California Grill. My family adores this restaurant atop Disney's Contemporary Resort. The views of Magic Kingdom from the restaurant are quite lovely. If you do make a reservation, indicate the special occasion, and request a window table. At this time, dining reservations open 60-days prior to your visit.

    Depending on your budget, also consider talking with a Dream Maker with Disney Floral & Gifts. They can help you add a little extra magic to what is sure to be a wonderful surprise. Before the day is done, I also suggest that you find a Disney PhotoPass photographer and get some official photos of the day. Photographers are stationed throughout Magic Kingdom or you could schedule a Capture Your Moment - Magic Kingdom session.

    Alfred, if you need some assistance with making that resort hotel or vacation package reservation, you can also contact a Cast Member by phone and they will be happy to help. I am so excited for you both and am sending a little extra pixie dust hoping you can reserve a room for your special day. What a beautiful memory you are about to celebrate. May your next years together be guided by the adventurous spirit of Moana and the Evening Star wishes-come-true of Tiana!

    Magic and memories,
